Brian, you need to insure that your pet sitter, has a police background check and is registered with either NARP's or PSI. Any professional service will have these details as part of their port folio to show at the pre visit.We are holidaying for a couple of weeks in July and need someone to care for our two dwarf lops - Sonic and Flash, 16 week old bucks. We are looking at a company called Pet Happy London. I was looking for some feedback from any one who may have used them. The web site and replys to queries seem vague.
You can also request references and good pet sitting companies will be known to local vets who will often recommend them, as they do with us.
Please feel free to pm me if you would like any further information.
